PREFACE. 



As has been noted by the editor of these Souvenirs, each session has some 
unusual feature to distinguish it from every other. That of 1900 certainly round- 
ed out the century as, in many respects, the most remarkable Legislature that for 
many years sat beneath the gilded dome. It began with a peculiarly "strenuous" 
contest over the Speakership of the House. To the credit of the contestants be 
it said that the result was accepted witli a good grace, and the unsuccessful com- 
petitors of the winner became his able and efficient supporters on the floor. Death 
early claimed a member, and within the first four months of the session two other 
members passed away. These were Messrs. Rivers of Milton, Wright of Fitch" 
burg and Keyou of Medford. There were two unusual investigations, a state 
board in each case being the abject of attack. Their results, as shown by legis- 
lative action, did not justify the time and expense of the investigations. There 
was also an investigation of the allegation by the newspapers of improper influen- 
ces attending the passage of a certain bill, but the committee's report completely 
exonerated the members from any suspicion. But the unusual feature of the 
whole session, and that which drew out its length beyond that of all its predeces- 
sors, with a single exception, was the contest over the lease of the Fitchburg rail, 
road to the Boston & Maine and that of the Boston & Albany to the New York 
Central. These subjects occupied the attention of the railroad committee until 
June 8 and they were not entirely disposed of until July 17. But in spite of the 
unusual and laborious nature of the session, the members voted down the proposi- 
tion to allow themselves additional compensation and the close of the century was 
reached with the dignity and decorum that characterizes the fitting representation 
of the law making power of the original and typical "commonwealth." .The leg- 
islators of 1900 can certainly claim distinction of membership in a body marked 
by enough events out of the ordinary to make it a notable "One in a Hundred" 
of similar bodies of the old Bay State. Each Souvenir has some peculiar and 
unusual feature, and that of this year's is the copy, on page 127, of the very rare 
painting of Daniel Webster under his favorite tree at his home in Marshfield, 
after he had retired from active participation in public life.

DORIC HALL 



This hall has seen varied gatherings, but none of greater interest than that 
of April 17, 1 86 1. On that day, the first volunteer company of the whole country, 
during the late War of the Rebellion, assembled here, chose its officers, received 
overcoats from the government and in an hour and a half from the time of assem- 
bling was ou it way to the front. The story, in more detail, is as follows : In 
Cambridge, in i860, had been formed a company of "Wide Awakes" to help 
elect President Lincoln. Hon. J. M. S. Williams, congressman from that district, 
promised them that if they would keep up their organization they could go to 
Washington to see Lincoln inaugurated. But the United States government for- 
bade the assembling of such bodies at the national capital. During the dark days 
of February, 1861, several of the company agreed to volunter if they were 
needed, and, on the 14th of February, several of them signed an agreement to 
that effect. First on the list was the name of John Kinnear, now assistant door- 
keeper of the House. In the first week in March, he, with a few others, visited 
the State House and personally tendered their services to Governor Andrew. He 
advised them that there was no immediate need of their services and that they 
return to Cambridge, whence he would summon them if necessary. Then came 
the news of the breaking out of rebellion. The> at once visited the State House, 
finding Governor and Council in session. Governor Andrew told them to return 
to Cambridge and that they would receive orders in an hour. They returned and 
the orders speedily reached them. Then, again, they hastened to the State 
House, many of their members leaving their work and throwing their tools into 
the street. Reaching the State House, they assembled in Doric Hall, ninety- 
seven of them. In a small adjoining room they chose officers, electing James 
Prentice Richardson, now of Texas, as captain. They first went to the Old Col- 
ony station, but were soon ordered to the "S. R. Spaulding," where they 
embarked for Fortress Monroe. They were first assigned to the Fifth regiment, 
but were soon transferred to the Third, becoming Company C. This was, with- 
out doubt, the first volunteer company of the Rebellion. It is a matter of history 
that this prompt, loyal and genera! response of this company, in contrast with the 
scattering returns from more pretentious organizations, did much to encourage 
the State authorities and "the great war Governor." 

In this hall lay, in state, the body of Charles Sumner, Sunday, March 15, 1874, 
where it was viewed by a multitude as vast as time would allow. 

In this hall gathered the "Army of the Unemployed," February 20, 1894, 
whence they were removed by detachments of the district and Boston police, but 
without violence. They had just been addressed on the Capitol steps by Gover- 
nor Greenhalge. 

This view is taken from the main entrance and shows the statues of Wash- 
ington and John A. Andrew in the distance.

ILLUSTRATIONS. 

Tn the arrangement of the illustrations in "A Legislative Souvenir," the 
State officers, the Executive Council and officers of the Senate and House are 
followed by the joint legislative committees arranged alphabetically, and these 
groups are separated by miscellaneous pictures that have more or less relation to 
our State government. They include views of all the principal halls and corridors 
of the Capitol, views from the cupola of the same, the offices of the various state 
de{ artments, etc., the whole making a collection valuable historically and intrin- 
sically, as well as because, in some cases, the views are the only ones of the kind 
that have been or can be obtained.
